Birds and aquariums


Thank you for letting me join your forum.

I have been looking into whether it is safe to have birds in the same room as aquariums, and I came across an old topic on your forum entitled 'Birds and fish tank in the same room?' The posts seems to confirm that it is safe for parrots, but my query is whether it is also safe for budgies? As they are technically parrots, I hope I am ok asking here?

Any help would be much appreciated

Many thanks in advance.

Hello and Welcome to Talk Parrots, yes budgies are parrots! The hooked beak is the tell tale sign, they are just mini parrots.

An aquarium won't post any danger to the budgie, just make sure the top of the tank is covered so the bird doesn't fall into the water and is unable to get out should it fall in and get wet.
